Yazoo Brewing & Jose Cuervo Collaborate on Passion Fruit & Tequila Strong Ale & Verifiez Vos Fruits

imageFrom Yazoo:

Yazoo Brewing Company is pleased to announce at 3pm CST on April 19, 2017 in the Yazoo taproom the release of an almost 2-year collaborative project with Jose Cuervo Tequila named “Maracuya’ y Tradicional” ( translated: Passion Fruit and Traditional Casks).The final product is a 9.9% abv Brettanomyces Golden Strong Ale with Passion Fruit aged in Jose Cuervo 100% Blue Agave Tradicional Resposado Tequila casks.

Head of Yazoo’s Sour & Barrel aging program Brandon Jones says “Working with a legendary 200-year-old Tequila producer on this project has been a very fun crossover into merging beer, freshly emptied tequila oak and wild yeasts. The beer has a big bright tropical fruit character that melds so well into the deep smooth character of the tequila casks. There are a lot of layers to this beer, it’s definitely multiple beers in one bottle.”

Maracuya y Tradicional is part of the Embrace The Funk line of beers and is packaged for taproom sales / limited local distribution in 750ml bottles with a real wood label. To celebrate this release (in addition to the 750mls)  the Yazoo taproom will also have 20 (twenty) 1.5L magnum bottles of this one time collaboration available on a first come first serve basis.

To further the “collaborative spirit” after emptying the oak tequila casks Yazoo then shipped them back to Mexico. Jose Cuervo is currently finishing a version of their 100% Blue Agave tequila in these same casks for a future special release of Embrace The Funk tequila.

Yazoo Verifiez Vos FruitsAs a bonus I’ve added in Verifiez Vos Fruits Pints for Prostates collaboration (750ml bottles).
